Muslims urged to join remembrance of Britain's war dead as Royal British Legion promotes £20 poppy hijab
by Hugo Gye
The Royal British Legion is selling a hijab covered in poppies for the first time in a bid to make it easier for Muslims to join in remembrance celebrations.
The headscarf is on offer at the charity's website for £20, where it is described as 'a symbol of remembrance that would appeal to British Muslims'.
It was first launched last year by a pair of smaller charities, but after they found themselves unable to cope with the demand they passed on responsibility to the Legion.
